Getting around Gimhae International Airport

I am arriving around 8:30 am in Gimhae International Airport and I need to catch Jeju Air to Jeju at 2.25 pm. Is there anywhere I can go or do during the waiting time at the airport? Thank you.

Gimhae is way less busy than Incheon Airport, so there's not a lot to do there. There are 2 separate terminals (domestic and international) but you can walk from one to the other in about 3 or 4 minutes. Together they have a Popeyes (chicken place), a Starbucks, a few convenience stores and a few Korean restaurants, all before you go through security.

However Busan's metro has a stop at the airport. Here's a link to the map:

Gimhae Airport is on the purple line near the bottom left corner. You could take the purple line a few stops to Sasang Station and then change to the green line and then go 8 stations to Seomyeon, which is one of the main areas of Busan. I don't know how long that would take, but I'm guessing with the transfer, maybe 45 minutes to an hour. As your second flight is domestic, if you plan to be back at the airport for 12:30 - 1:00 you'd have lots of time to catch your flight.

Hi Kit, there is really nothing much to do in the airport. I was there for 3 hrs while waiting for my flight to Jeju as well and really felt like dying of boredom. You may opt for and earlier flight or take the subway to the city but it probably will take 40-50 minutes to reach the city center. There are a few nice places to visit in the city area such as Gamcheon Cultural Village which can takes you about 2hrs of visit or do some shopping at . You can also visit the casino near Seomyeon Subway Station. Then you may head back to the airport and catch your flight to Jeju.
